"In the daily round of life, dust and cobwebs accumulate in our souls. The hidden corners of our hearts become encrusted with grime or filled with forgotten debris. During the weeks of Lent, God's Spirit is given opportunity to clear away the clutter, sweep away the dust and wash us clean. We are invited to prepare ourselves---heart, soul, mind and body---for the new life of Easter."

- Marlene Kropf, Professor at Mennonite Biblical Seminary
